Food is a foundational element of health and the primary fuel of the physical body. What you eat greatly impacts not only your physical health, but your mental and emotional state as well. However, there is much debate about what is actually healthy to eat. The American public is bombarded with conflicting information about diet and loads of advertisements for ‘health foods’ of questionable merit. If you are ready to discover what foods are truly healthy for YOU, nutritional therapy can help sort through the hype and listen to your body. Rather than focusing on fad diets, complicated calorie and nutrient calculations and loads of supplements and products, this is where you get back to the basics and honor the requests of the body even when they seem out of line with current definitions of a healthy diet.
Providers counsel clients on behavioral and lifestyle changes required to impact long-term eating habits and health. They facilitate planning, support and implementation of a nutrition intervention.
